Subject: [histfict] Historical Novel Society Annual Conference, London, 29-30 September 2012
With Hilary's permission, I'd like to draw everyone's attention to this year's Historical Novel Society conference, which is taking place in London on the last weekend in September.
This is the event of the year for all fans of historical fiction and is jam-packed with some of the biggest names in the business.
Please check out the website for more information and to book:
There's a rolling ticker of the cast list on the home page as well as more details on the Who's Who pages. There's also a Readers page, which gives a taste of how the event will be addressing readers' interests. Details of the programme are being firmed up at the moment and will be provided as soon as they are ready. You can also sign up for email alerts each time the website is updated.
As a taster, the guests of honour are Margaret George and Lindsey Davis. The special guest is Philippa Gregory and the after-dinner speaker is Bernard Cornwell.
I'm very excited to be attending my first HNS conference and to be on the conference committee, tasked with reader promotion and involvement. If you have any questions, feel free to drop me a line.
And I hope to see many of you there!
All the best
